(Romans 12:2 NLT) Don’t copy the behavior and customs of this world, but let God transform you into a new person by changing the way you think. Then you will learn to know God’s will for you, which is good and pleasing and perfect.

4. The best is always ahead of you.
(Hebrews 12:23) You have come to the spirits of the righteous ones in heaven who have now been made perfect.
5. You have come to Jesus.
(Hebrews 12:24 NLT) You have come to Jesus, the one who mediates the new covenant between God and people, and to the sprinkled blood, which speaks of forgiveness instead of crying out for vengeance like the blood of Abel.
